First BX baby of '09 born at Montefiore Medical Center

THE BRONX - The new year is already bringing a lot of ?firsts? to the Bronx.

Little Jacob was given the title of the first Bronx baby born in 2009. But this was also the first year Montefiore Medical Center was given the honor of delivering the borough's first baby of the year.

Rosa Leon, Jacob?s mother, says she was in labor for nearly a day. Her and her family are now celebrating their 6-pound bundle of joy.

?He was the first baby born in the Bronx! He better have big expectations,? Rosa Leon says.
